Mahesh Panchagnula, dean (International and Alumni relations) of IIT-M, said the presence of foreign students and faculty members is necessary on the campus, in order to make it more diverse.
Many faculty members of IITM have been co-authoring multiple research papers for different journals with foreign academicians.
The institute aims to attract such foreign faculty members, to take up full-time work with the institute, said an official from IITM.
In such fairs, we will also publicise about the fellowships provided by the institute and the Centre for foreign students,” said Panchagnula.
Presently, there are over 100 foreign students on the IITM campus but authorities have plans to increase the figure significantly by next year.
